I just got ELAN 5.6-FX working on Ubuntu 19.04, and I thought I would leave some notes here for others.

Installation (I used dpkg -i) went smoothly, but in order to have ELAN show up in the application menu I had to:
– in ELAN_5-6-FX.desktop, change Exec=/opt/ELAN_5-6-FX/ELAN_5-6-FX to Exec=/opt/ELAN_5-6-FX/ELAN
– copy ELAN_5-6-FX.desktop from /opt/ to .local/share/applications/

From just a quick test, looks like everything works smoothly, including video! Glad this update has fixed the old java errors.

Thanks for this information, very useful. The first point looks like something went wrong in the process of creating the package, I’ll try to keep that in mind for the next release.
